There is this myth going around in right-wing circles that Eastern Europeans are somehow uniquely based due to
blessings of communism not being under Western influence for some time, apparently.
I would say that with a possible exception of Poles, this story is just that, a myth. I could go on with my personal experiences of what they are currently doing in my neighbourhood, but that obviously would be subjective. Instead, I'll point you to some hard facts.
I'll give you one example which American traditionalists really love, Hungary and Victor Orban. He was pronounced the most based leader on Earth some time ago, because of his plans to increase birth rates. So let's actually look at these initiatives more closely.
According to BBC news, they included women with 4 or more kids being exempted from income taxes. You only pay income taxes when you work, so clearly we are talking working mothers over here, something that American conservatives are supposed to be very much against. But wait, Mr Orban also promised to create more nursery places, i.e, daycare, again, something which President Biden is being heavily criticised about.
In addition, grandparents will be eligible to receive a childcare fee if they look after young children instead of the parents, Orban said.
Because what's more traditional than Granny babysitting while Mommy is at work, right?
These plans may look revolutionary to American middle class folks who aren't accustomed to getting anything from their own government, but guess what? We have exactly the same rule in this country and many people are rightfully against it, because children belong with mothers, not with grandparents.
We also have housing subsidies for low income families, and countries like Germany and France offer such amount of benefits per every child born that you could probably live on it, without any need for either parent to work. The only demographic who enthusiastically use them are third world immigrants or their descendants. White European women are above such nonsense, and would rather work a job, apparently.
Fundie Christians in my country do have lots of kids, btw. So it's not really about money, it's about mindset. The only thing which actually sounds based in Orban's plan is the interest free mortgage loan which is supposed to be cancelled after 3rd child.
So why am I writing about it now, 2 years later? I've been following coronavirus debate on Roosh's forum and there are some folks who currently live in Hungary. "Based" Orban was the 1st to introduce vaccination passports and other draconian rules which would probably cause another revolution somewhere in the USA, yet he is still touted as an example by the same folks who criticise lockdowns in their own countries.
I know of one European country which currently forbids abortion, Poland. There is none to my knowledge which forbids divorce or restricts married women's employment. Yes, some are less progressive on alphabet stuff, but is it enough to qualify as "a based Christian country''?
I'm not so sure.
